It is probably a driver that is hanging on shutdown.

Check for driver updates

ive now gone back to ie8 and after looking around it turns out the reason the other 2 computers are not having this problem is they are both runing vista
which both use sidebar and windows 7 does not

that is why it hangs when closing down due to not having a sidebar
it must be loading on when i install ie9
is there away of geting rid of this file with no problems ???

Try running IE9 without add-ons and make sure you have required updates. From Forum member Anak:
